WHAT SCHOOLADVISOR IS ALL ABOUT

SchoolAvisor was founded with one simple but challenging purpose in mind: helping schools buy better. As CEO, Peter Morgan puts it, ‘If schools end up with the wrong products and services at the wrong price, it can be detrimental to education.’ We are here to be the one place where schools can easily find exactly what they are looking for by simply searching for it on our site.

Anneke Ochse SchoolAdvisor

Anneke Ochse

Happiness Engineer

As a child, Anneke aspired to be a baker, mainly because of her deep love for pizza.

Once all grown up, she completed her degree in B. Consumer Sciences at TUKS (University of Pretoria), specialising in hospitality management. Anneke has 8 years of experience in the hospitality industry, working as a manager at various lodges around the country.

Having mastered the art of baking the likes of macaroons and the best chocolate cake in the world (according to her husband), she, in her way, has fulfilled her childhood dream by baking for her family. Her love for pizza remains to this day…

Asif Sulleman SchoolAdvisor

Asif Sulleman

The Intern

As a child, Asif aspired to be many different things, including, a business owner, a soccer player, a musician, and an athlete!

Asif began his athletics career at the age of 16. He originally trained to be a 100m sprinter but discovered a love for long jump and stuck with it to this day. Post matric, his focus was still on training for the long jump but figured he had time to pursue his dream to one day become a business owner. He is currently completing the practical part of a Marketing Management course and SchoolAdvisor took him in as an intern and is teaching him a bit more about the working world. On top of all this, he has now been discovered by a modeling agency.

Asif still aspires to be many different things. He loves listening to music and will occasionally post a snip of him singing a cover of a song on social media. Today, Asif competes as a long jump athlete, plays football regularly, and still dreams of owning his own business one day. Just to round it off, he has even gone back to sprinting! As you can see, Asif is still fulfilling all his childhood dreams. Who knows where he’ll be in a few years – business owner? I think so ;).
